New England Hi-Vee is the trendsetter among 16-strand climbing ropes. It combines features that ensure unparalleled safety, ergonomics, and durability. The blue core of Hi-Vee is exposed when the rope suffers deep damage or has worn down to a certain point so that it should be discarded. As a full 12.7 mm rope, Hi-Vee goes easy on your hands. This allows you to work longer and avoid injury. Where durability is concerned, Hi-Vee‘s design and detailed workmanship are unrivalled. The additional step of plying the yarns in the strands results in a firmer, rounder, and more durable strand. Other 16-strand ropes skip this step, which makes them more susceptible to abrasion and thus also shortens their life spans.
- Proprietary “blue” safety core
- Plied strand yarns for improved abrasion resistance
- Coating with a protective finish improves durability and grip
[slaice]® is a registered termination of TEUFELBERGER. This is a unique combination of splicing and stitching. [slaice]® offers its users several significant advantages over conventional splices or stitching:
Flexible: The end of [slaice]® is about as flexible as a rope. Hence, it facilitates its installation in a cambium saver. The termination adapts perfectly to the rings and thus defines the direction of the pull. The lower pulling force makes the installation easier, as there will be no leverage effect caused by a stiffer splice.
Slim: In the case of [slaice]®, a thickened portion which normally occurs on spliced ropes is practically non-existent. The design of this innovative termination hardly exceeds the rope‘s diameter. The seam is made using TEUFELBERGER‘s standard [tnt] resin-based seam protector technology. The result of all these components is an easier handling of the termination.
Compact: The seam of [slaice]® is only 42 mm long, however, it still meets the requirements of EN 1891:1998 A. The length from the loop to the seam is approx. 100 mm. This results in a total length of approx. 142 mm. Compared to a conventional splice, this termination is several times shorter.
Light-weight: The [slaice]® technology helps achieve a weight reduction, as the amount of material is reduced compared to a conventional splice. This, in turn, contributes toward enhancing the safety for the work in trees.
